Here’s the Horrifying Reason Forbes Is Trending

Thanks, Mr. President

Porn star Stormy Daniels once said Donald Trump asked her to spank him with a copy of Forbes magazine, according to Mother Jones.

Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, became national news last week when the Wall Street Journal reported that she received $130,000 from Trump’s lawyer to remain quiet about a 2006 affair with Trump. Following that report, InTouch magazine ran a years-old interview with Daniels in which she gave her account of a relationship with Trump.

Now liberal bastion Mother Jones has added a lewd new detail to the story, citing an email from a political operative connected to Daniels. Daniels declined the magazine’s request for comment, and representatives for Trump have denied that the president ever had a sexual relationship with her.

“She says one time he made her sit with him for three hours watching ‘shark week.’ Another time he had her spank him with a Forbes magazine,” the email read, according to screenshots redacted to remove the names of the people involved in the exchange.

Trump appeared on the cover of the magazine in 2006, alongside his daughter Ivanka and son Donald Jr.

Mother Jones said the email was sent in 2009 when Daniels was mulling a campaign to challenge David Vitter, the Republican senator from Louisiana.
